Hike up on July16th to the red chairs. But, too crowded and was unpredictable weather hit the rainhail storms along the way. Hike up a little bit early.

Wildflowers are out. Minimal snow up to Wilcox Ridge. Amazing views with a gradual effort up to the pass and ridge.

Beautiful hike if you only have a few hours. Hike into the pass then head towards Icefields Parkway for a up close view of the Columbia Icefields. A cairn monument to Walter Wilcox marks the top of the lookout. Still some snow coverage in late June, but certainly worth it.
